This miniature silver-tone metal mesh purse is only about 3" x 2". With the chain handle, it is 5 1/2" long and has a round ring at the top. The frame has an embossed design. When closed, the two sides of the framework do not meet up perfectly...it is off center slightly which can be corrected but I do not wish to take the risk of breaking off the closures by twisting them. Hardly noticeable but I like to mention any flaws. I believe this was a finger coin purse originally but due to the small size, it will look great on a doll's arm. Probably early 1900s.
